Social sensing has emerged as a new paradigm for collecting sensory measurements by means of "crowd-sourcing" sensory data collection tasks to a human population. Humans can act as sensor carriers (for example, by carrying GPS devices that share location data), sensor operators (by taking pictures with smart phones), or as sensors themselves (by sharing their observations on Twitter). Scheduled to be held in Dallas, Texas on October 19, 2015, SocialSens 2015 is the first international workshop on social sensing to bring together researchers and engineers from academia, industry, and government to present recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research.
